Why would anyone hack my website? It doesn’t have anything that could benefit them.
We’ve all heard of popular and busy websites getting hacked and private data being stolen - member login data, credit card numbers, and sensitive personally-identifiable data. A well-known example was Yahoo hacked in 2016 - data from at least 500 million accounts stolen. It’s obvious why a hacker would be interested in compromising those systems. But it’s not only top websites that are targeted. All public-facing websites are subject to constant attack.
Maybe your website doesn’t have thousands of login accounts storing sensitive personal data of your users, but there are many other things a hacker can use. Most of which you probably have no idea of.
